The idea that 120,000 people are choosing America\'s Biggest Bargain Sake tickles me.

Bargain Sake= nothing to mess with.

That\'s the funniest fat finger error I\'ve ever done.

While we\'ve been enjoying the final couple of months of $ale on GSN, watching http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MB6IXHsRR7c\'>this early episode on youtube today reminded me how much the show evolved through the years. Only the $25 money card, no speed round, no cash jackpot (although there was the odd suitcase of $5,766 in cash mentioned during the shopping). And Jim seemed to be more eager to negotiate on the instant bargains back then … more likely to slash the price (as low as $3 in this episode). Reminded me of Tony Barber\'s style on the Aussie version.

Almost everything about the American version was just like the Aussie version in the beginning.


 


One thing I could never figure out was why did our version get rid of the celebrity faces on the Fame Game board after about a year. The Aussie version always kept them.

Because they were pointless.

I definitely agree with that assessment.


 


One other thing that episode vividly illustrated was how shockingly bad Sally Julian\'s delivery was, even if she did have some rather unexciting instant bargains to present in this episode. Surprised she lasted as long as she did.

Does anyone know if the pitchfilm for 80s Sale still exists? That would be something to see.


 


I liked the car cue in that January \'83 episode; wonder why they got rid of that.

I don\'t know about \"still existing\" (meaning in Fremantle\'s hands), but I do know that the pitchfilm circulates among collectors.


 


And it\'s something I would love to see one day. What drew my interest in it was that it had clips from the Joe Garigola era of the show. The weekly syndie version (1973-1974) to be exact.

Wow, I didn\'t realize any 1969-1974 footage was in collector hands...

Yeah, but I don\'t know if the pitchfilm was made first, or the pilot.


 


Yes, apparently, there was a pilot with Jack Campion as one of the contestants.

I never liked the music package that replaced the old ones in \'88 (except for both car cues).

Question for the team:


 


When the lone $50,000 win (by Rani White) went down, did they use the original Car/Lot win from the original music cue package, or did they use that cheesy win cue (heard during the rare natural car win and also used after the car was won during themed weeks)? Or...did they use a completely different cue altogether?


 


Something that just crosses my mind from time to time. I was curious.
